Bragging Rights On The Line!

A side story brewing at tonight’s football game at New Trier is the friendly challenge waged between Stevenson Superintendent Eric Twadell and New Trier Superintendent Paul Sally. The losing superintendent will have to wear a shirt from the opposing high school. Here is Dr. Twadell modeling the shirt he hopes Dr. Sally will soon be wearing!

As for the game, the 0-1 Patriots are hoping to rebound against the 1-0 Trevians after losing to perennial state power Maine South in the season opener last week. Stevenson coach Brent Becker cited a strong defensive showing last week by Colin Schultz (5 tackles, 1 sack, 2 hurries), Alex Zhekov (5 tackles, 1 tackle for loss), Ryan Hynes (4 tackles, 1 tackle for loss) and Jimmy Davis (1 intercpetion). Click here for more complete coverage in the Daily Herald.
